4:48pm
bring us those winds out of the north, and that's just going to have to push the low clouds and fog to the south. so even the coast will see a little more sunshine tomorrow. mild temperatures across the bay area, as we head into the holiday on monday, offshore winds develop, and temperatures will warm up even more. so, tomorrow, nice day. for sunday, 84 for san jose. beaches, more sunshine, as the low clouds and fog will be pushed off the coast. so half moon bay, 63. 80 for palo alto, san francisco, you warm to 70. daly city, 64. 88 for santa rosa. on the east bay, oakland, 75. hayward, 75. and the valley areas, temperatures will start to warm up a bit with brentwood, 93. 92 for antioch. danville, 9 1. livermore, 92. and santa cruz, 93 degrees. the seven-day forecast, we will warm things up even more so as

4:51pm
70s. sometimes they make no sense. it's an art film. my initial impression was, what is this? but there are images still sticking with me. i have to give it three quarters of a bucket. don sanchez, see you on the aisle. >> alan: leigh is fired unbecause it's football season. >> mike: and you know how i am. uc davis may have found the century star of the future. he can do it all. run, pass, and score, and he is only a a a a a

saving money. and like baseball people love their stats. i started bringing my lunch to work -- 50 bucks a week in my pocket. here's a good one: state farm insures 40 million drivers. more than geico and progressive combined. i saved because i'm accident-free. of course, with so many ways to save including discounts of up to 40%, having that many customers shouldn't be a surprise. so ask a neighbor about state farm, then call an agent at 1-800-state-farm or go online.
